The hard-earned weight-loss after Bariatric Reconstruction can be painfully undermined by remaining sagging, hanging skin. The hanging skin can make it difficult to maintain hygiene, find clothing that fits properly and can make activities like sitting down or standing up difficult if not embarrassing. During a Body Lift, excessive skin, fat and loose tissues are removed and the entire trunk (abdomen, flanks, and back) and sometimes of the buttocks and thighs are lifted.
Drooping buttocks with poor skin tone after high-volume weight loss can now be treated. A Buttock Lift can help correct excess fat deposits, loose skin, and weak muscles to achieve a firmer, tighter appearance. This procedure is often performed in combination with other procedures such as liposuction, tummy tuck and thigh lifts.
Panniculectomy removes the large “apron” or bulge of post-weight loss skin and fat from the middle and lower torso. This extensive procedure, unlike the tummy tuck, generally removes a drastic amount of excess skin that may have been stretched out around the hips and lower back.
Loose, extra skin on the inner thigh can be an unwanted result from weight loss or simply a product of aging. Some experience chronic irritation and infection around their thighs because of the excess skin. A Thigh Lift improves the overall appearance and feel of the thighs by strategically removing loose skin and fat.
Loose, hanging upper arm skin is most often related to skin failing to tighten after dramatic weight loss. The Brachioplasty procedure aims to reduce the circumference of the upper arm by eliminating sag and restoring a toned appearance so patients can feel comfortable wearing sleeveless clothing again. Re-contouring the arms can sometimes include both liposuction and surgical removal of excess skin.
